One of the most prevalent beauty problems we encounter is under-eye bags. Under-eye bags are usually a result of several things, including sleepless nights, stress, ageing, and genetics.
Fortunately, it’s possible to prevent this problem using under-eye patches like COSRX Advanced Snail Hydrogel Eye Patch, eye creams, or massages.
Plus, with little makeup, you can instantly cover your under-eye bags to look flawless, younger, and radiant.

- Eye Cream
Before you apply makeup, you must apply eye cream to create a moisturised base. Make sure to give some TLC with a cream specifically formulated for this delicate area. Avoid using a facial moisturiser as it’s too heavy for your eye skin.
You can try HEIMISH Marine Care Eye Cream, a popular K-beauty product for strengthening skin elasticity. It improves dark under-eye circles and wrinkles thanks to its creamy and thick formula.
Remember to gently tap the cream upwards to boost circulation and give a lifting effect. 2. Contour your Under Eye Bags
If you have under-eye bags, we recommend applying a creamier concealer like THE SAEM Cover Perfection Tip Concealer SPF28 PA++. Make sure to choose one lighter than your skin and use it at the bottom of your eye bags. The idea is to delineate the shades of the bags.
According to K-beauty makeup artists, when you contour your eye bags, you create a lifting effect, instantly depuffing the skin around the eyes.
Because the Cover Perfection Tip Concealer SPF28 PA++ provides excellent coverage, it’s crucial to use it lightly. This concealer is also terrific for blurring dark circles; you can use it instead of foundation.
You need to combine the concealer well to avoid looking cakey or clownish. We recommend using your fingers to apply the product as it creates a more even blend.
- Brighten your Eyes
Koreans brighten their eyes using a pale or pink coloured highlighter to cover their under-eye bags. You want people to focus on your eyes, so don’t use dark eye shadows or eyeliners.
You can try All About Candy Pink from MEMEBOX I’m Meme Multi Cube.
The I’m Meme Multi Cube provides a quick and easy way to highlight your eyes. It offers four eyeshadows, so it’s ideal for beginners or professionals.
Don’t forget to highlight the inner area of the eye to illuminate your face. 4. Draw a Subtle Line Below the Eyelash Line
Puffiness can make your eyes appear tinier and lifeless, so draw a subtle line below the eyelash line. Take your favorite eyeliner and gently apply it. When you do this, you make your eyes look awake.
One of our favourite eyeliners is Pearl Brown from TONYMOLY Back Gel Eyeliner Long Brush, as it defines your eyes beautifully.
The Back Gel Eyeliner Long Brush gives you more control and precision than liquid eyeliners. Plus, it lasts up to ten hours without transfer or reapplication. It comes in eight colours, from matte to shimmer, so you can find the one that best suits your needs.
- Set with Powder
Usually, people who suffer from under-eye bags have dry skin and fine lines. That’s why your primary goal is to improve the texture for a smoother appearance. Apply setting powder to prevent creasing concealer.
We like INNISFREE No Sebum Mineral Powder as it moisturises and brightens the skin providing a matte finish. This loose powder is formulated with natural ingredients from Korea’s Jeju island.
The No Sebum Mineral Powder controls oil production so you can use it even in your hair. This skincare product lasts up to five hours, and it’s recommended as a daytime powder.
If you’re constantly suffering from under eye-bags, it’s essential to sleep well, eat a rich-balanced diet, drink plenty of water and follow an eye care routine. Experts recommend applying an eye cream twice daily to prevent dry skin.
Finally, don’t forget to protect your delicate eyes’ skin from the sun by using sunscreen or a cosmetic with SPF. Just apply it gently and carefully to avoid the product entering the eyes.
